Life: Escaping the Fishbowl

“Better do a good deed near at home than go far away to burn incense. 

I’m a flier pursing my passion for the fun of it. I’m going to fly around the world. I want to be free.

I understand the danger, I can handle it. I’ll make it, I know I will. “

Amelia Earhart

Old & Ornamental

“Do not regret growing older. It is a privilege denied to many.”  Silence Dogood

“Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional.” ~Chili Davis

“The greatest gift of the garden is the restoration of the five senses.” ~Hanna Rion



Opposites Attract…For Awhile

“We are sun and moon, dear friend; we are sea and land. It is not our purpose to become each other; it is to recognize each other, to learn to see the other and honor him for what he is: each the other’s opposite and complement.” Herman Hesse 

“The opposite of bravery is not cowardice but conformity.”  Robert Anthony

“Yes, opposites attract.  Two people who collide head-on upon introduction will lust for each other on the spot. They’ll tango, they’ll dance both inside and outside the bedroom, and then they’ll eventually destroy each other.  Opposites attract, but they don’t work.   The thing about opposites attracting is the same thing that destroys them, the fact that they collided.”   Anon

I was taking some macro shots of a fly pattern when this very little fly landed upon the size 10 dry (composite stonefly, hopper, caddis pattern). The thought of opposites attracting came to mind.


The Gate

“The fence that makes good neighbors needs a gate to make good friends.” SwittersB

“Death is a part of Life, they are dancing together the dance of infinity in front of the gates of Time. We can live our dreams as we are dreaming our future.”  Grigoris Deoudis

“Don’t ever take a fence down until you know why it was put up.”  Robert Frost

“Habit rules the unreflecting herd.” William Wordsworth

“Bewilderment increases in the presence of the mirrors.” Tarjei Vesaas

“There’s just something unsettling about studying your reflection. It’s not a matter of being dissatisfied with your face or of being embarrassed by your vanity. Maybe it’s that when you gaze into your own eyes, you don’t see what you wish to see—or glimpse something that you wish weren’t there.” Dean Koontz


On a more positive note: I was attending a yard/garden show. One vendor, his first such show, was displaying assorted wooden designs. This starburst pattern caught my eye because the mirrors were so beautifully inlaid that at first I thought I was looking through the holes until I realized I was looking at the reflections of the nearby grass. The pieces were unique from the usual copy cat/cookie cutter yard art one finds. And, yes there are those times we actually like what we see. 


The Doors of Sunmor & Life

“Sometimes I wonder if men and women really suit each other. Perhaps they should live next door and only visit now and then.” Katharine Hepburn

“This is the strangest life I’ve ever known.”  Jim Morrison

“The closing of a door can bring blessed privacy and comfort – the opening, terror. Conversely, the closing of a door can be a sad and final thing – the opening a wonderfully joyous moment.” – Andy Rooney


Springtime Macro: The Back Yard

The trees are leaving (or is it leafing?) out. The blossoms are blowing about. The ferns are unfolding. Moss invades the lawn and adorns the moist spots. With the sun shining and warmth bathing the emerging green, the yard seems to almost twitch to life before me. I snapped some hand held macro images.

“In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.”  Margaret Atwood

“Spring is the time of plans and projects.”  Leo Tolstoy

“It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want – oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!”   Mark Twain
